From Varsity Jackets To Sassy Suspenders, We’re Crushing Hard On ‘Stranger Things’ 80s Fashion

By  | 

As the latest season of Stranger Things shifts to 1986, the strong influence of the 80s fashion seems like an important aspect. With the main characters moving to California, the aesthetic is all about micro-fringes, big hair mood, bomber jackets and canvas shoes. Keeping a mix of plaid, rustic and neutral tones alive, the costume designer of one of Netflix’s most loved shows–Amy Parris, reveals the importance of tightening authenticity to weave the plot well. The V in Vintage plays the protagonist in every character’s closet this season. From Eleven’s scrunchies, and plaid shirts, to Billy’s double denim and Dustin’s geeky hats and graphic hoodies, everything is on our shopping radar. And if just like me, you too are itching to dive into the 80s for a fun fashion spin, then check out our favourite picks and let your closet go upside down.

Print Pop Shirts

If just like Eleven, you too are on your way to becoming the 80s fashion icon, but in the current times, then the first step is to get your shirt stack ready. From printed, and artistic to quirky, shirts of all kinds need a mention in your upside-down wardrobe. Check out our favourite picks from Uniqlo and The Missy Co.

Funky Outerwear

The 80s were all about denim-on-denim, quirky bombers and varsity jackets, which btw are style saviours. Rooting for these oversized numbers, the boy gang of Stranger Things 4 and even our beloved Max, seem pretty obsessed with everything from denim, and colourful to extra large fits.
